A mish-mash of ideas about stress, absolutes, and competition.OK, you can tell from Lexi's confused look that today is one of those shows where even I say to myself, "now what was she talking about?" Some days out in the canoe I experience these ideas or insights. Then I try to talk about them back on the beach, only to have the wind, other people, other dogs, pending rain, etc. distracting me somewhat.I was thinking about the contradiction of racers wanting to be alone in the front of the pack. But in this case "alone" really is in the context of a pack or a community. Community does not have to be all equal equal. Sometimes competition and pulling out in front can be fun, can stimulate improvement in everyone, and really is just another way of experiencing community. So long as no one takes it too seriously.Subscribe in iTunes so you won't miss a single episode! Try it - it's easy. Please leave a comment for us while you're there!

Beach Walk #328 - Contradictions & Silver Linings
This was a good, short show in which Rox talks about how we tend to overemphasize the absolutes of how we choose to define our own thoughts in our minds.
